Jim's ribs are the best. The ribs are lovingly hickory smoked for hours (probably days, it seems, or as long as it takes for perfection). Jim's sauce is the real deal. Jim's sauce is like a fine bordeaux that has aged just long enough to be excellent. Be aware, these are not your soggy, fall-off-the-bone Carson's type ribs. Jim's ribs are substantial. Filled with flavor, filled with body and filled with pleasure. If you are a rib aficionado, then you gotta try Jim's Ribs!

If you are looking for something fancy, don't go here. But if you are looking for the best ribs in the area this is the place.

Stopped in this week for lunch with a friend and man did we eat.

We both ordered the Bony Box Ribs with a side of fries.

The ribs were tender and huge (the sauce is excellent), the fries are fresh cut and tasty.

If you go you better be hungry. I was only able to eat half of my lunch, but leftovers are always good.

Cost for two at lunch $38.00, a bit high, but good.

I stopped by after reading the reviews from Tripadvisor. I am not a big fan of ribs and tried the pulled pork. The sauce was delicious and Jim's gives you good value for your money with sides.

Went to jims last night to pick up a slab of ribs for my birthday dinner with friends, when it was time to eat I opened up the box and the ribs were over cooked, dry, burnt crust and no sauce on the ribs or in the box to spoon over the ribs to try and moisten them up. I was very disappointed as this has been my favorite rib joint for 25 years.

The best ribs in town, You drive by downtown rock island and your mouth waters with the smell. Though it's slightly overpriced, at least the last time I was there.
